    A Telomere-Targeting Drug Depletes Cancer Initiating Cells and Promotes Anti-Tumor Immunity in Small Cell Lung Cancer

    Using preclinical mouse and human-derived models, investigators found low intermittent doses of 6-Thio-2’-deoxyguanosine inhibit tumor growth and reduce metastatic burden.

    Activating p53 Abolishes Self-Renewal of Quiescent Leukemic Stem Cells in Residual CML Disease

    Scientists demonstrated that the regulatory programs of quiescent leukemic stem cell (LSC) in chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) are similar to that of embryonic stem cells, pointing to a role for wild type p53 in LSC self-renewal.

    The Impact of Circulating Tumor Cell HOXB13 RNA Detection in Men with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Treated with Abiraterone or Enzalutamide

    Researchers conducted a retrospective analysis of the multicenter prospective PROPHECY trial of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer men treated with abiraterone/enzalutamide.

    N6-Methyladenosine Reader YTHDF1 Promotes Stemness and Therapeutic Resistance in Hepatocellular Carcinoma by Enhancing NOTCH1 Expression

    The authors evaluated the clinical significance of YTHDF1 using human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) samples and found that YTHDF1 was significantly upregulated in HCCs with high stemness scores and was positively associated with recurrence and poor prognosis.

    The Dopamine Receptor D1 Inhibitor, SKF83566, Suppresses GBM Stemness and Invasion through the DRD1-C-Myc-UHRF1 Interactions

    GFP-labeled tumor cells were sorted from invasive and non-invasive regions within co-cultures. Ui-RNA sequencing analysis was performed to find a gene cluster up-regulated in the invasive compartment.

    N6-Methyladenosine-Modified MIB1 Promotes Stemness Properties and Peritoneal Metastasis of Gastric Cancer Cells by Ubiquitinating DDX3X

    The effect of mind bomb 1 (MIB1) on peritoneal metastasis of gastric cancer was confirmed in vitro and in vivo. Co-immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry demonstrated the association between MIB1 and DEAD-box helicase 3 X-linked (DDX3X).

    m6A Demethylase ALKBH5 Maintains Stemness of Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma by Sustaining BUB1B Expression and Cell Proliferation

    Bioinformatic analyses of The Cancer Genome Atlas data were performed, and the association of alkB homolog 5 (ALKBH5) in predicting overall survival in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma was investigated.

    Integrin-Associated Transcriptional Characteristics of Circulating Tumor Cells in Breast Cancer Patients

    Single-cell RNA sequencing of CD45-negative cell fraction of breast cancer patients was performed. All circulating tumor cells were divided into nine groups according to their integrin profile.

    Crosstalk between Colorectal CSCs and Immune Cells in Tumorigenesis, and Strategies for Targeting Colorectal CSCs

    The mutual interactions between CSCs and cancer niche immune cells are largely uncharacterized. The authors focus on colorectal CSCs, CSC-immune cell interactions, and CSC-based immunotherapy.
